iPhone/iPad Basics: Mastering Your Mobile Devices 

By now you're at least comfortable using your iPhone or iPad. 

You know how to power your device on and off. You’re familiar with the interface. You’ve configured your settings so now it works in a way that makes sense to you. And maybe you’ve even discovered some of the more hidden features like the Control Center, Notification Center, or Spotlight Search.

Am I pretty close so far?

If not, you should probably take a step back and enroll in my "iPhone/iPad: Focus on Foundations" class first to get caught up.

But if what I said WAS true for you, you’re in the right spot.

In part 2 of this 3-part introductory iPhone/iPad Basics series, we'll take a deeper dive into the practical how-tos of using your device’s powerful (but user-friendly) features.

In this course I’ll help you make sense of the more advanced topics that you should know as an iPhone or iPad user. I’ll show you a variety of ways to navigate your iPhone and/or iPad, such as the 4-corners method, using voice dictation with Siri, and “drawers.” We’ll go over Siri settings, commands that Siri understands, in-app navigation, common symbols (and what they mean), and how to search the App Store to find games and useful apps.

If that’s not enough, I’ll even show you how to set alarms, timers, and reminders; check the weather; get answers to your questions; make restaurant reservations; and so much more!

A whole new world will open up for you once you’re able to call anyone you want, get directions to anywhere you need to go, and even send text messages and emails without ever touching your device.
